Puppies! Kittens! Rainbows! Glittery drops of sunshine! Count yourself lucky I can’t actually find a glittery, sparkly font because I would so use it, and trust me, I am not a glittery font kinda girl.
The title is a tad bit of a spoiler, but today was weigh-in day. And you might be able to guess it was nice. Not just nice, really. More like extraordinary, stupendous, amazing and darn near miraculous. That’s closer.
Just how nice was it? 9.5 pounds nice. (happy sigh)
I have had a love/hate relationship with the scale (and myself) for almost my entire adult life. I can live and die by the numbers. Mostly, I just ignore it, and buy bigger clothes every few years. I admit, stepping onto the scale last week for the first time in a long time wasn’t a fantastic feeling. But today is.
Let’s be honest. A girl doesn’t need to lose this much weight without losing some weight before. But never as much as I have to lose now and never as quickly as I have in my first week. And for someone who’s into instant gratification, that’s pretty darn encouraging.
The best part was that last week was an adjustment, but it just wasn't that hard. This is do-able. I just need to choose between making a lifestyle adjustment and living with being fat – and ask which one will make me happier and healthier?
And yes, I know, upcoming weeks won’t be nearly as dramatic. But for today, thanks to Renee and the grab and go meals, I am going to love every minute of it!
